7 Way Attachment Bracket?

I've looked everywhere, can't find the name or anything to lead me to what I need. Purchased a 7-way umbilical cord and need some kind of conduit bracket to secure the cord to the pan or shell. It needs to seal out the elements and keep the cord insulation from rubbing against the sharp edge of the aluminum. Would prefer one that is tough and made of aluminum or stainless steel (I'll use a gasket). Everywhere I look I find these cords, but no bracket to secure them. How are people attaching them? Am I missing something?

A PO wired an outlet on ours, so the umbilical cord gets unplugged and stored when not in use. I kinda appreciate that.

Maybe these clamps to support the cord?

and a rubber grommet where the cord penetrates the sheet metal?

Perhaps it doesn't exist. I have a junction box and cable clamps, but I was envisioning some type of panel or plate that would receive the entire cable through the pan or shell. Something clean looking and functional, like the components used for electrical conduit. I could use a rubber grommet I suppose, but I'd prefer something that tightens down around the cable and holds it securely. Thanks for your help.

How about something like this,

Newmar Waterproof Cable Entries - CCX Series - Cable Outlets - Electrical - Downwind Marine

Or this,

Beautiful! Thank you Chief! Both options are intriguing, I don't think I would've found this without you. Not exactly what I had envisioned but I think the one from downwind marine may work.

My pleasure, hope you find what you need. I have used both styles on my boats and they work well.
